The following updates on programs were released this week from the Milford Public Library.
Ox Bow Park Pass
Milford Public Library has a 2021 park pass to lovely Ox Bow Park, located in Goshen. The park pass is for one vehicle and comes with an Ox Bow County Park brochure. It is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The park offers lots of adventures for those who love the outdoors. Go hiking, or fishing on multiple piers, make use of the fields to play sports such as soccer, volleyball or flag football. If you enjoy winter sports, check out the two sledding hills and warming house for a fun day. For an additional fee, you can take advantage of their Archery Range or play their popular 24 hole Disc Golf course. Ox Bow Park hours vary from month to month; January and February hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. As the weather warms up the hours extend in the evenings. You can find more information about the park at elkhartcountyparks.org. We look forward to hearing about your adventures at Ox Bow Park!
